Functional Foods

"Functional Foods" are foods or dietary components that may provide a health benefit beyond basic nutrition. You can take greater control of your health through the food choices you make, knowing that some foods provide specific health benefits.

Examples include everything from fruits and vegetables to fortified or enhanced foods. Biologically active components in functional foods impart health benefits or desirable physiological effects. Functional attributes of many traditional foods are being discovered, while new food products are being developed with beneficial components.

Be realistic about your body size and shape. Your genes have a lot to do with the way you look so avoid trying to be someone you were never meant to be. Feeling good about yourself starts with accepting how you look. Remember, healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes!
